    Welcome ot HF from Bama......That is quite possibly the most unique first post I have ever seen on this site. Love the design and like Randy I will be making one of these in the future. I will even look into making a double so Mandydawn and myself can hang closer together. Thank you for the inspiration!!!!!

    Sounds like a hiphop dance move to me.
    Old Gringo, you do a lot of hiphop dancin' do you?


    Pattersam,
    Welcome to HF from central Florida (the other sunshine state)!
    I'm glad I don't have a trailer link because then I would have something else to add to my DIY list - but I really like your design.
    You know you could put a tarp over it too. Talk about your structural ridge line!
    .
    So many trees, so little time...
    We follow where the Swamp Fox guides,
    His friends and merry men are we;
    And when the troop of Tarleton rides,
    We burrow in the cypress tree.
    The turfy hammock is our bed,
    Our home is in the red deer's den,
    Our roof, the tree-top overhead,
    For we are wild and hunted men.

    That's really neat! Kudos for a great first post and WELCOME!

    An outer end strut/leg might really work well, especially a totally removable one. Probably could be made of something lighter, cheaper, etc. Or stick with the same material for continuity's' sake. Post again if you add one.

    I am thinking, the upright off of the hitch to be pinned, so it can be set up behind or off to the side of the Jeep.
